Butler Alumni: Why Limit Yourself?

Butler CC Alumni Chelsea Good

I have had the privilege of knowing Chelsea Good her entire life and can say without a shadow of a doubt that some things don’t change.  She has always been stubborn, determined, and to this young lady the word “no” is never absolute (she sees it as more of a challenge). Chelsea is originally from Parker, Colorado.  She came to Butler Community College and competed as a member of the nationally acclaimed Livestock Judging Team.  She was also a Grizzly Ambassador.  After completing her A.S. degree in Agriculture at Butler she continued her education at Kansas State University where she finished not 1, not 2, but 3 undergraduate degrees (within the semi-typical 4 yr timeframe).  Her B.S. degrees are in Public Relations, Agriculture Communications and Journalism, and Political Science.  Chelsea is a great example of how a community college student can seamlessly transition to a senior college and still graduate on time.  Not one to sit still, Chelsea also competed on the K-State Debate Squad, National Agri-Marketing, and Animal Science Academic Quadrathalon teams.  She also was an active member of Collegiate Cattlewomen, Collegiate Farm Bureau and the College of Agriculture Student Council.  After completing her undergraduate coursework Chelsea stayed at K-State and earned a M.A. in Communication Studies. 

 She and other Kansas State University agricultural student leaders formed the group Food for Thought and she continues to be a regular contributor.  Additionally she has been very active with the National Cattlemen’s Beef Association’s Young Producers Council (YPC) and also contributes to their blog. 

 Since 2006 Chelsea has worked independently as a freelance writer for various agricultural publications if you follow this link you can get to her online portfolio  and read a sampling of her work.  Chelsea just celebrated her ¼ life birthday (crisis free I believe) and in her short 25 years has already accomplished a great deal.

 Currently, Chelsea is a 2nd year law student at Washburn University in Topeka, Kansas. In addition to being a student she works part time with the Kansas Livestock Association where she assists the legal team with legislative research and writes for the Kansas Stockman Magazine. She also works part time for the lobbyist firm of Pinegar, Smith and Associates assisting with legislative research and client communication.  Yes, Chelsea has a lot on her plate and yet she rarely misses a chance to cheer on the Wildcats, in person.

 Chelsea describes herself as an Agriculture Advocate.  She hopes to develop a career representing the agriculture industry in governmental affairs. However, if her past is any indication of her future I wonder what ELSE she may do along the way.  Like many Butler graduates she doesn’t wait for things to happen, she makes them happen. In Chelsea’s world, the question is always, “Why limit yourself?”
